With a sunny patio and creative brunch menu, Pour Company in Fullerton is a prime spot for a weekend brunch. We asked chef and co-owner Nick Oberlin where he enjoys the weekend’s most important meal.

Chef Oberlin loves:
“Haven Craft Kitchen + Bar for a solid Sunday Brunch. They’ve built a great following as a neighborhood restaurant with broad appeal and I have a lot of respect for that. It’s a place we can take the kids and their great beer selection is a welcome bonus during brunch! Some menu standouts are the duck confit chilaquiles, breakfast carbonara, and fried bologna breakfast sandwich — all great choices!”

Haven executive chef Craig Brady loves:
“As a chef, it’s hard to spend weekends brunching, but when I have the chance, I love to head into Anepalco’s original location down the street from Haven to indulge in their chilaquiles. They’re hauntingly good—from presentation to flavor—every experience leaves you thinking about how you’ll order two on your next visit!”

Anepalco executive chef and owner Daniel Godinez loves:
“The lengua omelet from Old Vine in Costa Mesa. It’s simply delicious. Lengua (beef tongue) is rare to find in O.C. The dish is a perfect combination of ingredients and flavors.”
